    what kind of help I ask to you is it depends on what season you are coming but we are looking for volunteers all year around. Help from 6:00 am to 12:00 pm for 4 hours per day (it depends on seasons and weather )5 days a week usually we have the weekend off.
    Help with farming/harvesting. cleaning. planting. general help .preparation for the fields.

    - our house locates in a residential area so plz be quiet after 8:30 pm.
    -it's farm work so your clothes get dirty some time. And most of the time we work on the same task but we are proud of our job we are really happy with who has respect and understand our job.
    (Some volunteers are only consuming the time and chatting on the field. We are not happy with that.)
    -we have a house which is only for volunteers so plz cooperate with the others to clean the house and do dishes.
    -it's exchange volunteer work. Not being paid also not provide foods. You can have some vegetables from farm.
